Learn how to use an 8x10 view camera!
Instructor Phil Chin will demonstrate how to use Gallery 44's recently acquired 8x10 inch view camera! In addition, participants will be able to shoot with 8x10 impossible film! Topics to be covered will include how lighting affects the subject as well as how to load shoot and process the 8x10 impossible film. Each participant will be given one test sheet to shoot after the demonstration (included in the workshop fee). If you would like to shoot more images, there will be a $30 fee for each additional sheet of film (paid to the instructor on the day of the workshop).
This workshop also serves as an orientation to our 8x10 camera.
